Kirk Hammett 2020

During a recent Metal Injection Livecast, THE SWORD guitarist Kyle Shutt was asked who has the best weed among his colleagues musicians.

“Kirk Hammett,” he responded without much thinking. “He had this sh*t called ‘Romulan’ one time, which was, probably, the best weed I ever smoked.”

Shutt also shared a weed related story while his band was on tour with METALLICA.

“We got a bag of weed one time called ‘God’s Gift,’ and it was the stinkiest weed ever. When we were on tour with METALLICA, they didn’t really care what we did, but they would usually put our dressing room far away from their’s, so we could whatever we wanted. Smoke weed, and they wouldn’t bother us,” he explained. “But if it ever was a venue where our dressing rooms were wall-to-wall attached to each other, they would just ask that we didn’t smoke in our dressing room, so that no smoke would get in their room and bother them. And, we were totally respectful of that. No bones about it.”

“So we had this bag of ‘God’s Gift,’ we weren’t even smoking it,” he Shutt continued. “We were just hanging out backstage, breaking it up, to take all the stems out. They came and knocked on our door like Hey guys, you know you can’t smoke in here, what are you doing? And we’re like, we’re not even smoking it, we’re just breaking it up, and they looked at the weed and they were like… Wow… anyway, would you mind taking that outside?”
